The Funky Deli | Aaron-Spencer C: J Medeiros is a Hip Hop prophet of consciousness. Since coming across his natural ability to read between the lines of our society, on his 2007 debut LP Of Gods and Girls, it has become clear that the Coloradan/Californian emcee is serious about spreading awareness of our everyday struggles, which we often sweep out of sight.
Mr. Medeiros’ latest creation comes in the form of the music video “Pale Blue Dot”, from the 200 limited edition 7” vinyls released by The Find Magazine. The setting sees the former member of The Procussions flowing about political violence and those choosing greed over originality. Toy soldiers scattered across the desert sand, along with flashcards of emotive words, emphasise Medeiros anti-war beliefs and desire to open viewers’ minds.
The Chorus has a soothing but thought-provoking tone as the voice of Giannina Ashe tells us how the world appears in this modern age (“…Just a sailing rock/ Yeah a pale blue dot/ Where they say we ain’t changed a lot, since out days in Rome.”)
Just like a teacher who aspires for his students to succeed and learn from life’s lessons, J Medeiros wants you to take a look inside yourself and find where you fit in, in this shaky world of ours.
